On Watch, Alert Alpaca

On Watch, Alert Alpaca

5" x 7" original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store


Alpacas are known as
quiet and friendly animals...
providing us soft alpaca fiber.

Many breeders of both sheep & goats
(and chickens too!)
use alpacas as guard animal
protectors for their flocks.

Alpacas are often 'On Watch'
while the other animals graze.
Alpacas guard against foxes,
and many other predators,
which is most important during
lambing & kidding season
when the farms are abundant
with newborn lambs and kids.

Alpacas, compared to the many
other animals in the world,
are undoubtedly intelligent.
Also being friendly, quiet, and herd social,
they're great creatures to get to know!

While mingling amongst them
I've decided that each alpaca,
much like individual people,
has its own personality
and lovable beauty.

A Hug Please, Wooly Sheep

A Hug Please, Wooly Sheep
8” x 10” original oil painting
gallery wrapped stretched canvas

Available in my online store

Sheep with their docile
and friendly nature are
interesting social animals.

I've found them to have
a lot more personality than
many people would imagine.

It doesn't matter if you're
with them in the farmyard or barn.
A curious sheep, like this one,
will come close, look at you,
and then cause you to wonder
what the sheep would like to say.
So... you simply 'give it a hug of love'
(works for people too!)

This peaceful & calm pasture has
a pleasing evening sky

The warm earth-tone palette
of the pasture is enhanced by
the abundant subtle hues of the sky.

Several friendly Wooly Sheep are
resting and late-day grazing.
